  Reisswolf: Ouch! Carlsen missed the fairly obvious tactical shot 40. ♖xf8. These things can happen in a blitz game.

Nov-29-09  IraGraves: <timhortons: check out this video>

why do you post the same video on all naka-carlsen games of the tournament (it shows only their second game)?

right, you have an agenda here, but that's kind of cheap.

Nov-29-09  timhortons: <IraGraves> what can you say about frame 9:34?

do you think daddy need to apologize about it?

Premium Chessgames Member
  Eisenheim: this should be a later in the week puzzle. loved this game and the video
Premium Chessgames Member
  Jim Bartle: If it's just white to play on move 40, it's too easy even for Monday.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eisenheim: if you take it from move 37 I'm not sure if its forcing enough since 39 ...g5 has to be a blunder. from move 40 I think it could be a fun monday or tuesday. (
Nov-29-09  wing hing: well done naka for bringing carlsen back to earth except that he hates i bet he likes the idea of being a superstar u know like a hero type... did u see him cryin on kasparov's shoulder? isn't that what he pays him for someone to cry on... awwwwwww
Nov-30-09  ycbaywtb: ok, 4 games, i'm just happy Nakamura showed he can compete with Carlsen, wasn't a run-over like the Tal Memorial. i only looked at the first game, which was kind of a miracle save for Hikaru. this is why i love chess though, blitz is different from classical. London will have just the one round of classical, i'm hoping Naka shows well again. i'm going to review this 4th game later.
Nov-30-09  IraGraves: <timhortons: do you think daddy need to apologize about it?>

What for? I guess Nakamura was actually pleased to see that outburst of disappointment.

Anyway, the credit goes to Nakamura. A pity he didn't show up in Moscow - anybody knows why?

Nov-30-09  The Rocket: "Anyway, the credit goes to Nakamura. A pity he didn't show up in Moscow - anybody knows why?!"

he wasnt invited

Nov-30-09  IraGraves: <he wasnt invited> ah, ok. i was confused because i recall someone saying he declined to play. hope to see him next year then.
Nov-30-09  TheMacMan: this guy nakamura is pretty magical and obviously the best blitz player in the world, not carlen.
Nov-30-09  310metaltrader: for all the patzers, if black takes the rook that took the horsie it is mate very soon.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eisenheim: 40 ...rxf8 41 rxe6+ rf6, 42 rf6+ kg7 43 rxf4+ and mate to follow and black is out of material
